Video: Florida Atlantic University Student Freaks Out in Class, Asks Professor “How Does Evolution Kill Black People?” - Jonatha Carr

First off: in the video below the F-bombs are dropped at an incredible rate. Likely the profanity to actual word count is probably 1:1 or even 2:1 . . . in favor of the curse words. And why? No one is actually sure what set FAU student Jonatha F*ckin' Carr off, but something in the class about evolution made her think that it killed black people. So she rants to the professor, and then when the students start moving away, she rants at them, then slaps one white male student in the forehead.

Eventually a school security officer shows up, orders her out of the room, and then she attacks him. Everyone piles on at that point, and the video ends.

Likely Ms. Carr will NOT be giving the commencement address this year. Here's more from UPressOnline:
Associate Professor Stephen M. Kajiura was reviewing with his evolution class in GS 120 for a midterm when FAU student Jonatha Carr interrupted him: “How does evolution kill black people?” she asked. Kajiura attempted to explain that evolution doesn’t kill anyone.
And then, Carr became violent.

A fellow classmate, Rachel Bustamante, was sitting behind Carr prior to her outburst and noticed she had been avoiding looking at the professor until 11:35 a.m. — that’s when she snapped. The classmate reported that Kajiura was discussing attraction between peacocks when Carr raised her hand to ask her question about evolution. She asked it four times, and became increasingly upset each time Kajiura’s answer failed to satisfy her.
A video taken by Bustamante shows Carr ranting and threatening to kill the professor and several students. At this point, the witness who contacted the police claimed, “No one was comfortable in the room. I realized the situation was escalating and went out to call the police.” Seconds later, Carr walked down an aisle of the classroom and slammed the palm of her hand into the forehead of a male student.
